Steven Matz headlines top 10 prospect list by Baseball America


BaronBaseball America has released it’s new list of top 10 Mets prospects, and the list is headlined by the club’s Game 4 starter in the World Series.

Steven Matz was ranked the Mets best prospect by Baseball America.

Matz made just six regular season starts upon making his big league debut with the Mets in late June. He was sidelined by a torn muscle in his side for two months, but has come back and has made two solid starts for the Mets in the postseason.

Amed Rosario follows Matz in the rankings. At just 19-years-old, Rosario is widely regarded as the club’s shortstop of the future, although he suffered through a minor wrist injury in the midle of the 2015 season. He’s athletic, has a lot of speed and gap-to-gap power. He also figures to be a well above average defender when he eventually reaches the big league level.

Others on the list include Dominic Smith and Gavin Cecchini, who both captured MVP awards in their respective leagues in 2015, Marcos Molina who had an elbow scare this past season, and Wuilmer Beccera, the young outfielder who – along with Noah Syndergaard and Travis d’Arnaud – was acquired in the trade that sent RA Dickey to Toronto in December, 2012.

The rankings are as follows:

  • LHP Steven Matz
  • SS Amed Rosario
  • 1B Dominic Smith
  • SS Gavin Cecchini
  • OF Brandon Nimmo
  • RHP Marcos Molina
  • INF Luis Carpio
  • OF Desmond Lindsay
  • INF Matt Reynolds
  • OF Wuilmer Becerra
